“I noticed that the replacements were shorter than the original. I pushed the new battery (+ side first) into the lamp-side case used a paperclip as a jumper to complete the circuit from the negative to the case. First light in fifteen years!

In the process I discovered that the white plastic screw adjusts the brightness.” – J. Barnes
